It’s time for Summer Desserts
At Clements, we love summer time. Being in the air conditioning and refrigeration business helps to appreciate the hotter months, but there’s lots of things to love about the season. Summer time means school holidays, Christmas, New Years, beach trips and amazing seasonal food. As Christmas is fast approaching, we’d like to share an Aussie dessert classic with a twist, perfect to take to your next festive gathering….
